Recently, a good friend of mine who I have worked with for a number of years asked me if I had ever thought of writing a blog. He said that I gave good advice and have helped a number of complex, and senior, people over the years.
Until that point I had not thought of it, but over the past few weeks I thought more about it and decided to give it a go.
Over the last 20 years I have actively observed people and how they interact with each other throughout the workplace. I have been lucky enough to have experience of large and small organisations and seen good times and times of extreme stress.
I have found myself many times in conversations with people at all levels and rarely does the conversation focus on the core business problem or actual business issue of the day. The vast majority of workplace conversations relate to people and the interplay between them. Call it office politics if you like, call it moaning or water cooler chats, I just think its human nature which becomes more apparent due to the time together in an office. Just think of people you have sat next to for years and not spoken to since they left. It’s not natural which is why it yields such interesting results.
The articles here are some of the more common topics or themes I have seen. I am not sure if they are to help the readers or really to help me try and make some sense of it all.
I’d certainly welcome any feedback or perhaps you may even be able to help me! If you want to guest write something then I’d be happy to post it with your name either shown or you can stay anonymous.
Please do contact me if there is anything I can help with.
